Evie died on October 23, 1991 after a four-year battle with lymphoma. She had four young children that were ages four to nine when she died. Her children are now in high school and college--and doing beautifully. She was married to Larry Hutt. Their home was in Santa Monica and both she and her husband were attorneys in Los Angeles. After graduating from UCLA, Evie taught high school in East LA. She then traveled throughout Mexico, Europe and North Africa. She went back to school and graduated from UCLA School of Law and soon became a partner in a major LA law firm. She was always a wonderful sister, wife and mother and truly a most amazing woman. She is deeply missed.

Gary Beckham

 I was surfing your site for some reason and found my father’s name on the "lost" friends section Gary Beckham from St. Louis Missouri. The bad new is, he died when I was 9 years old. I just would like to tell you that because you asked me to mail you if you know where these people live. He married my mom who is Turkish.

Thanx -- Bye.

Peter Wittenberg

I regret to inform you that my father passed away November 6, 1988 after a nine-month battle with liver cancer. Though the government has yet to agree with us on this, it is believed that he developed cancer at such a young age due to his overexposure to Agent Orange while he was a road clearer in Vietnam.
He is survived by his wife Holly Wittenberg and his two daughters Desiree and Theresa, who were 7 and 5, respectively, at the time of his death. He was and is loved dearly and is kept in the hearts of many.
His daughters would love to hear stories about him or maybe see pictures from people who knew him.

Thank you so much,
Theresa Wittenberg
